Editor’s Notes: The original Nike SB Janoski and has been refreshed and remixed in a number of ways since its introduction in 2009. Now, 10 years after Nike SB skateboarder Stefan Janoski got his own signature model, the Swoosh has unveiled a sequel: the Air Max Janoski 2.
The original Janoski had a simple, no-frills skate shoe design. The upgrade, however, adds an IP foam midsole unit with visible Max Air bubble in the heel and, in the case of the Premium version, a knit ankle collar. While some OG Janoski editions were also given the Air Max treatment, the new version looks to be a Max kick by default. The upper is kept simple, with a quarter panel that looks to have been taken directly from the original model.
